Online career services panel discussions

From: John Dalton

Dear Graduate Students:

I hope you’ll take advantage of the online career services panel discussions offered by the Versatile PhD. This online career services resource is available to you at no cost. Please visit the web site below and see what you’ve been missing.


November Panel: Careers in Government Research (STEM fields)

Our third panel of the academic year explores options for research careers in government settings. Panelists come from a wide range of agencies and labs: NASA, EPA, US Air Force, US Geological Survey, California Department of Water and Resources, and Health Canada. You’ll find template text for in-advance promotion and for week-of promotion in the attached file (.txt format).

2015 Panel Discussions

Careers in Technology for Humanities and Social Science PhDs (January 26-30; H/SS forum)

Let’s kill the cliche that humanists and social scientists don’t or can’t have careers in technology. This panel discussion will present a good group of H/SS PhDs who have bootstrapped their way into technology careers, and now play diverse technology-centered roles in a wide variety of organizations.

Careers in Informal Science Education (February 23-27; STEM forum)

Museums and other nonprofits (nature preserves, zoos, etc.) are key sites where science education takes place. Many STEM PhDs have entered this stimulating and rewarding field. The February panel will showcase a nice group of them doing informal science ed in a variety of settings.

Careers in Marketing for STEM PhDs (June 8-12; STEM forum)

Products and services that have science at their core need to be marketed with the help of scientists to make sure the science is right and the best possible story is being told. This discussion will feature STEM PhDs who have gone into Marketing, using their science knowledge to help educate customers truthfully about products and services that are science-based.

Best regards,

John Dalton, Assistant Dean for Graduate Studies
